Adam Levine Has Been Performing, Winning Awards & Preparing for a North American Tour
Levine told Ellen that he’s been “doing as little as possible” since leaving The Voice. He said that being a stay at home dad with his two young daughters, Dusty Rose and Gio Grace, is basically it for him. This is not entirely accurate. He also headlined the 2019 Super Bowl half time show and has been planning to kick off a tour with Maroon 5 beginning the summer of 2020 that will continue throughout 2021. The summer tour will travel throughout North America with Meghan Trainor and Leon Bridges opening for him. The South American tour will begin in February, 2021, reported Rolling Stone.
He told Howard Stern that he needed to spend time with his wife, whom he married in 2014, and his two children who are three- and two-years-old. He said that he has gotten to know his wife as a mother and that it’s “rare to fall in love with the same person twice.” His wife Behati Prinsloo is a Namibian model for Victoria’s Secret, who began working in the modeling industry in 2008. The couple met through one of Levine’s friends who suggested that he contact her to appear in one of his videos. She turned the job down, but they remained in touch. She told Oprah Magazine they “fell in love over email.”
The 2019 Billboard Awards nominated Levine and Maroon 5 for seven awards, four of which he won, including bests for Hot 100 Song, Radio Song, Collaboration and Top Selling Song. Levine skipped the awards show, with Cardi B accepting the award for Top 100 Song, because she was the artist who collaborated with his band on the song Girls Like You.
